Abstract: 

Osler thanks Barker for his donation. Explains that the Rockefeller Foundation has saved the situation for the science professors by offering to pay those working in English Universities a moderate stipend. This arrangement is owed to Welch and Flexner. Denys is the only Belgian professor of medicine, van Gehuchten has gone to Cambridge. Mentions that everything is going smoothly, they are hopeful but aware that it will be long. Details on the cases of anti-typhoid inoculation. One is going to die. Mentions that the bad results are, however, very rare. Thanks for his note about the Vesalius. The photograph is excellent (of the 25th anniversary of the Johns Hopkins Hospital). Hopes his book is progressing. Civilities. Greetings to Johnny Hewetson.
